Colin Kaepernick has been watching NFL games from his own home for the last five seasons. But the former 49ers QB insists he can still help a team win.

His second chance may be imminent. Kaepernick had a tryout with the Las Vegas Raiders on Wednesday. The Raiders are in the market for a No. 2 QB behind entrenched incumbent Derek Carr.

This comes on the semi-distant heels of a throwing session for NFL scouts at halftime of the Michigan spring game on April 2. Reviews of his play were mostly solid, throwing into the wind in 40 degree temperatures, albeit with no D-linemen breathing down his neck.

A few NFL teams took notice, to the point it’s worth wondering if Kaepernick, 34, could get that elusive chance in 2022. At least one team is interested.

Bookies.com oddsmaker Adam Thompson has revealed his projected NFL odds for Kaepernick’s 2022 team.

Which Teams May Want Kaepernick?

The Raiders have already taken that first step. That’s more than any other team has done in years. Kaepernick’s off-the-field activism – including kneeling for the National Anthem and anti-police sentiment – has had teams wondering if signing Kaepernick is worth the potential locker room and public relations fallout.

Even if he is signed and brought into training camp or just minicamps, making it to Week 1 is another story. To be blunt, there is the question of if he’s even good enough. He hasn’t played a snap in five years and his last season, in 2016, San Francisco went 1-10 in his starts, and 2-6 the year before.

Aside from Las Vegas, Kaepernick’s connection to the Seahawks seems to have the most weight. He worked with Seattle WRs Tyler Lockett and Aaron Fuller this offseason and publicly reached out to head coach Pete Carroll. Seattle is the only other known team to have brought Kaepernick to town for a workout in the last five seasons, ultimately going in another direction in 2017.

The Panthers are still searching for an answer at QB, and the Lions currently have Tim Boyle as their No. 2. If another team takes a stab at the long-sitting Kaepernick, those two are top destinations based on need.
